'Twas the night before the Leaving Cert, and all through the house not a creature was studying, not even a mouse...
The heatwave has come and gone, and that can only mean one thing: the Irish State Examinations are kicking off in the morning. This got us reminiscing about when we did our Leaving Cert exams - thinking back on the stress, the comfort eating, the cramming, the apathy, the denial, and the sheer desperation of it all.
A quick glance at Twitter will bring you right back, so why not take a stroll down Memory Lane with us...
